Lunar New Year 2017

5 Feb

One of twelve creatures of the Chinese zodiac. 2017 is the year of the rooster. Although I’m a couple of days late, my wit and humor couldn’t be more fitting. I even found a use for Kao Kaitao, the kite/acrobat I created when I made my “Congratulations!” sign back in 2015.

For a while, I got the idea of Chickpea McCluckading having a brother named Cocktail. When my chance came, I threw in the reference. It was tricky to pinpoint one less obvious difference between Clumpy (calling himself ‘Clucky Drunstickbottom’) and Cocktail, but I was able to find it one day before I finished this piece.

Also, I think the name ‘Mei-Din Chinatown’ has a clever ring to it. I ought to copyright it.
